    that includes British "intellectuals" who post disinformation here,such as comparing Brtish Sharia courts to Jewish arbitration courts,to fit in with ideological"Moslems can do no wrong" pecadillos. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/faith/article4749183.ece "It has also emerged that tribunal courts have settled six cases of domestic violence between married couples, working in tandem with the police investigations. Siddiqi said he expected the courts to handle a greater number of ?smaller? criminal cases in coming years as more Muslim clients approach them. "_ Politicians and church leaders expressed concerns that this could mark the beginnings of a ?parallel legal system? based on sharia for some British Muslims. Dominic Grieve, the shadow home secretary, said: ?If it is true that these tribunals are passing binding decisions in the areas of family and criminal law, I would like to know which courts are enforcing them because I would consider such action unlawful. British law is absolute and must remain so.? Douglas Murray, the director of the Centre for Social Cohesion, said: ?I think it?s appalling. I don?t think arbitration that is done by sharia should ever be endorsed or enforced by the British state.? There are concerns that women who agree to go to tribunal courts are getting worse deals because Islamic law favours men.
